Use Bacon Heads Quebec Party By CAROL PASCOE i MONTREAL (CP) Lise Ba- con, at 36 the first woman pres- ident of the Quebec Liberal Fed- eration, is determined to prove she can be more than a symbol. "I'm not a feminist, not ag- the dynamic brunette explained during an interview, "but I think the best way to prove that we can do things as well as men is to get involved." Miss Bacon, unopposed in presidential Dominations this fall, said she was not aware of any hostility toward the idea of a woman leader. "Perhaps I was too far away at my home in Ttois Rivieres 70 miles northeast of Montreal to notice but no, I think I would have heard about it. "There may have been some who regarded me as a symbol new look of the '70s, per- if I was a new person just because I'm now president. Miss Bacon expresses her ideas freely in convers a t i o n sprinkled with gestures and laughter. Her opinions are given readily as the result of long and careful consideration. She refers constantly to the changes which the 1970s must bring to every facet of life. SEES OBSOLESCENCE N For example she sees changes in store for women's or- ganizations, and particularly the Quebec Liberal Women's Fed- eration of which she has been president for the last three years.. "Our women's workshops will be obsolete in the 1970s. We have to have some influence on the mainstream of thought and pol- icy." She recognizes that many of the older women in the federa- tion are "a bit scared" of see- ing their organizations absorb- ed or eliminated, but "there must be an evolution of think- ing." Politics have been an obses- Gait Nurses Graduate Oct. 23 I The board of trustees and of the Lethbridge Munici- pal Hospital have announced the graduating exercises in honor of the 1970 graduates of the Gait School of Nursing, the School of Radiology and the School of Laboratory Technici- ans at the Yates Centre Friday Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. Also Included in the weekend activities will be a reception ia the Gait School of Nursing auditorium following graduation ceremonies sponsored by the Women's Auxiliary to the Mun- icipal Hospital.

Recently I moved my family from Richmond, Virginia, to Southern California. As we were packing to leave Virginia I happened to walk through my 16-year-old daughter's bed- room. She was in the process of dressing and was wearing only a pair of panties and a bra. My daughter was very embarrassed and immediately grabbed1 her kimonai I was pleased with her modesty. Three months later this same girl walked Into our living room while guests were present. She was wearing a bikini which exposed half of her bottom. If she had leaned over she'd have been 95 per cent naked. I later asked my daughter for an explanation of Her sud- den absence of modesty. She said, "It's just a matter of fashion. Bikinis are in: Everybody's wearing them." Is this change in her due to peer pressure, or the wish to be accepted, or what? Pop-Eyed DEAR POP: You cannot cany her back to 01' where, incidentally, 16-year-olds are also wearing nor can you insist that the girl wear a World War I, bathing suit. Heaven forbid! But you do have the right to expect your 16-year-old daughter to wear clothes in the living room of course, that's where the swimming pool is, which in California is not unheard of. DEAR ANN LANDEHS: Last year my wife and I were divorced. I could have taken our three children but she prom- ised she'd behave if I let her have them. It made sense that children belong with their mother. I live in a small place and I would have had to buy a large home and hire a housekeeper which I can't afford. My wife has a trampy girl friend who leeches off her. Together they make the bars around town and Lord knows what else they do. Last Friday my oldest boy, age 8, called me at to say his mother had not come home from work and there was no supper. He had given the four-year-old left- over soup and put her to bed. I went over and brought some hamburgers, milk, cole slaw and ice cream. At a.m. my wife and .her girl friend rolled in. They were higher than a couple of kites and looked like something the cat had dragged in. My wife was mad because I was there. She insisted the kids could have managed without me. Now I'm concerned that my children aren't being taken care of properly. What can I do? Boca Raton DEAR B. R.: You can see a lawyer. An unfit mother should not have custody of her children. A woman who would leave three kids under 8 years of age alone until a.m. doesn't sound very fit to me. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "I'm sorry 1 questioned your integrity...

Miss Bacon said her parents ivcre ardent Liberals through- out the 1930s reign of Maurice Duplessis and his Union Na- tionale party "one could say they thought I was ready." The role of party militant is lime consuming. Miss Bacon lien't had a vacation in three years, but hopes that "mavbe next year By then, however, she will liave to dedde whether to re- new her presidential, mandate, return to studying, or perhaps run for a political seat. Miss Bacon's only replies were a shrug and an enigmatic smile when asked if she would like to contest a general elec- tion. She admitted that both fed- eral and provincial politics offer fascinating possibilities Meanwhile, though, there was LISE BACON it was almost courageous of them to be Liberals in Trois- Rivicres at that time." Her brother Guy represents their home riding in the Quebec national assembly, the first Lib- eral to be elected in Trois-Riv- ieres in the last 15 years.

"We have a new leader, Rob- ert Bourassa, and he attract new members. But there is a need for constant communica- tion with local political associa- tions. We must furnish work for them. We must attract younger women. Right DOW they hesitate to get involved at higher levels." Her job as office manager for an insurance company in Trois- Rivieres occupies her from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Politics monopo- lize evenings and weekends. There are also her night classes in psychology and busi- ness administration, and read- ing in the few remaining moments. Miss Bacon said she hopes she won't be the last woman president of the Liberals. "I enjoy accepting a chal- lenge, and now that I've opened the doors, others will follow."

THE HOMEMAKER By Elizabeth Bartmin, District Horn e Economist, Administration Building THE FROST He went to the windows of those who slept. And over each pane like a fairy crept: Wherever he breathed, wherever he stepped, By the light of the moon were seen Most beautiful things. There were flowers and trees, There were bevies of birds and swarms of bees, There were cities, thrones, temples, and towers, and these all pictured in silver sheen'. Frances Gould. Do you recall, as I do, the frost pictures as Hannah Fran- ces Gould describes here? Now our modern, yes beautifully modern, windows are insulated against Jackirost so our view is clearer, but not so beautiful- ly imaginative. On the other side of time's ledger we see the beauty of plastics in furniture. design. Furniture, like our highways, is being designed so functionally, that it has a depth of beauty. Within the last twenty-five years significant pieces of fur- niture made of plastics have been designed and produced. Very likely it is a chapter of chemical history relevant to my readers interests. The substantial difference in physical qualities give us two categories of plastics. Thermo- setling plastics, after being set or cured by heat, do not soften again when heat is applied. Plastics as these, that are used in furniture are polyurethane, polyester and phenolics. The other category is the thermo- plastics which are softened by heat and are made rigid again by cooling. These plastics in- clude the acrylics, vinyls, poly- ethylene, polystyreneand nylon. Polyurethane is popular in home furnishings because it can be as resilient as a soft cushion, or as rigid as wood with any intervening flexibil- ity. See it in imaginative free- form beds, chairs and cushions and hi upholstery. Two opaque plastics, polyes- ter and polystrene, are shaped by an injection process. These give freedom of design with complicated shapes and com- pound curves. The acrylic resins product crystal clear, translucent pieces of furniture with a light spacious, airy quality. A revolutionary development is the inflatable vinyl furniture. Either transparent or opaque inflatable tables and chairs, sofas and beds will hold up to 300400 pounds. With such ad- vantages as lightness in trans- portation and inexpensive fill- ing of air, this furniture is bound to become popular with spaceage living. Besides using plastic as a material in its mm right, it is also being used as molded and cast parts, either decorative or strucutral in fine furniture. We can expect to see more and more plastics used in good quality furniture as table tops and aprons, chair arms and legs, cabinets, and as drawer frames and guides. Yes, plastics simulating traditional woods, or as.inflat- ables, as contoured reinforced plastics and as crystal clear acrylics are being used in our furniture concepts. They have the future in home furnishings.
